The plot itself is decent enough but when the reader tried to stress excitement or fast-action, he only read quicker and did not change the pitch of his voice. I was disappointed. If you really want it, it is probably worth the money but you need to be sure to use your imagination to make up for the lack of the reader's.
Interesting storyline with enough convolutions, but trite dialog, full of well-worn cliches. And is it true that every cop cannot complete a sentence without the F word as portrayed in "Spider"?
The plot was good and the characters were OK. Plenty of twists and turns. I was disappointed that profanity was peppered through the book and it seemed like sex was thrown in more often than it needed to be. It didn't really advance the story.
I've never read it but this version was better than the movie than again any book is usually better than the movie because a movie has to sum it up in 2 hrs.
The plot was a good plot if you are intrigued by the criminal mind and like to know how and why a criminal thinks.
I like the narrators ability to effectively play a split personality.
Yes once the book caught my intention I wanted to finish it.
I got tired of the story line being side-tracked. The "love-story" got boring as it interrupted the action and plot...and the ending was pretty predictable. I got to thinking this was filler for an otherwise short story line. I was very disappointed in my first Alex Cross book--as it will be my last.
Patterson - NoTurner - Yes
This is a detective police procedural for the masses. Not for me.
Not bad but could have been better although I think the source material was somewhat limiting.
It is already a movie. I watched it after reading the book. It was worse.
Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
You can't go wrong with James all of his books are Thrilling!
Um.. I liked it all I guess I am not good at these reviews..Use a credit you won't be disappointed..
I enjoy detective series of books, especially Issac Bell, Alex Cross and Michael Haller. Biographies, most recently was Unbroken...
The twists in the story that kept you on the edge of your seat.
Too many good parts to pick a best... a great read, a great movie but the audiobook was by far the best of the options,
Not really. I got bored with the story and wasn't impressed with the narrator.
I just don't think I'm a fan of his writing style
There were enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of listening and not wanting to shut it off. I liked that there were not too many characters. Very well done.
